Eurimages Official Festival Partner

Active since 1989, Eurimages was established as a cultural support fund of the Council of Europe. It currently numbers 36 of the 47 member states of the Strasbourg- based Organisation.

Eurimages promotes the European audiovisual industry by providing financial support to feature films, animations and documentaries produced in Europe.

In doing so, it encourages co-operation between professionals established in differ- ent European countries.

Eurimages has four support schemes: cinema co-production, theatrical distribution, exhibition and digital equipment for cinema theatres.

Eurimages first objective is cultural, in that it endeavours to support works which reflect the multiple facets of a European society whose common roots are evidence of a single culture.

The second one is economic, in that the Fund invests in an indus- try which, while concerned with commercial success, is interested in demonstrating that cinema is one of the arts and should be treated as such.

The majority (almost 90%) of the Funds resources which origi- nate from member States con- tributions goes to supporting co-production. Since it was set up in 1988, Eurimages has supported the co-production of 1349 full- length feature films and documen- taries as at 31/12/2010. A number of these have received prestigious awards (Oscars, Palme dOr, Golden Lion). The rules and conditions under which assistance is award- ed are revised each year in order to reflect developments in film- making in the member States and to respond better to the needs of those working in the industry.
